Tomb of Qar, Giza

Tomb of Qar

Qar's tomb is located just to the east of Khufu's pyramid, and south of his causeway, in the Eastern Cemetery. One must find a Guard with a key to gain entrance; it's well worth the search. While there's not much color, the reliefs are deep and clear. (Bottom photo) It's also one of the few tombs I've been in at Giza that has statues in it. (Below) Note that everything is carved out of the plateau stone into which the tomb is dug.
